InStarting Out with C++: Early Objects,Gaddis covers objects and classes early after functions and before arrays and pointers. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter.Introduction to Computers and Programming; Introduction to C++; Expressions and Interactivity; Making Decisions; Looping; Functions; Introduction to Classes and Objects; Arrays; Searching and Sorting Arrays; Pointers; More About Classes and Object-Oriented Programming; More About Characters, Strings, and the string Class; Advanced File and I/O Operations; Recursion; Polymorphism, Virtual Functions, and Multiple Inheritance; Exceptions, Templates, and the Standard Template Library (STL); Linked Lists; Stacks and Queues; Binary Trees.This text is an ideal introduction to C++ programming.
Judy Walters is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. In addition to her many computer science courses, she enjoys teaching a freshman course on film and literature. She also enjoys studying foreign languages and cultures, and recently developed a new course in technology and society, which she taught in Costa Rica Fall 2005, as part of the college's international studies program.
